About Us

bringing made from scratch recipes to your table.

Our Story

Our concept was created by a group of partners who wanted to offer healthy food choices to a community that’s quickly discovering the health benefits of natural and whole ingredients. We purchase our beef from Swift Level Farm in Lewisburg. Swift Level steers are farm raised and live on an all grass diet. They process in a USDA, Animal Welfare Approved facility and dry age for 45 days. Our producers restore the land, not deplete it and support family farms as a way of life in our region. Your purchase keeps the dollars and the food system local. Thank you for supporting a traditional farm.

Our Master Chef

This is Paul Almond, THE master Culinary Guru. From coming up with tasteful and eclectic Mexican dishes to drawing from his experiences making homemade Italian dishes, he makes Tuesdays and Wednesdays a can’t miss for dinner specials at the Dish! Paul has been a part of our culinary team since the beginning and his creativity with fresh, in-season ingredients has been key in bridging the gap between growers and customers and making The Dish Cafe the #1 choice for Farm to Table in Southern West Virginia. Paul’s integrity shines through in the food he prepares and in his desire to improve the health of our patrons.

Jeremy Moore is affectionately known as “Turtle” but not because he’s slow in the kitchen! Maybe it’s because he can deflect stress with his tough outer shell and can keep on cooking! Seriously have you seen this dude go? He can cook a flawless ribeye while building sandwiches and mixing up our made-to-order Parmesan cream sauce all at the same time. Yep, that’s our man Turtle – he adapts to whatever is necessary to get the job done and his culinary talent is impeccable.

Sharon Dodd came to us with years of experience as one of the best cooks in the neighborhood. So when we turned over our golden recipe book to her in her new role as Prep Cook, she did not disappoint. Her culinary intuition definitely kicked things up a notch! Sharon has contributed invaluable tips and ideas and we’re so proud to have her on our team. Sharon is truly the main matriarch of the kitchen and helps keep our boys in line every day.
